It’s too bad that Halloween can’t be celebrated like it used to be when I was a kid. I would spend about a week thinking of just what I was going to wear on that “scary” night. When the night finally arrived, my brother and I would meet up with my friends and off we would go. We would go door to door, block by block, throughout the neighborhood. There was no car driving us around. We walked the whole night. We would hit every house there was on the block. Well, almost every house.

In every neighborhood there was always that one house that nobody dare approach the door. The old man there scared us during the daylight, so going there at night was not an option. But the thought of ringing the doorbell of that house was what made Halloween what it was, a scary but fun night to be out with your friends after dark.

It was fun and a different time then, but a time that today’s generation is really missing out on and that is too bad.
